This is our first dry white from Jean-Marie Guffens' new white Bordeaux project. Having established two iconic properties in Burgundy, Guffens was given the opportunity to purchase the historic Château Closiot from Bernard Sirot (a well-known Belgian wine journalist). From what we hear, Guffens could not pack his suitcase quickly enough. And this wine is enough to tell us why.
Château Closiot covers eight hectares on the formidable Clos Bonneau, an exceptional terroir where red earth dotted with pebbles rests on the limestone base typical of the Barsac plateau. Surrounded by Climens, Doisy-Védrines and Coutet, the clos is planted mainly to Sémillon and includes a generous four-hectare parcel of 100-year-old vines. The property’s dry wine includes a portion of the rare Sauvignon Gris, with both varieties vinified entirely in oak with approximately 25% new barrels.
